 BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Baxter County inmate is back in jail after receiving medical treatment in Little Rock.

While unable to give the exact reason for the medical procedure, the Baxter County Sheriff's Office did confirm that Gary Parks, 39, of Germantown, TN was taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Little Rock early Tuesday morning and was brought back on Thursday at 3:00 p.m.

Parks was under 24 hour security surveillance with two officers watching at all times.

Parks is charged with capital murder in the death of his stepfather, Dr. David Millstein. Milstein, a Mountain Home urologist, was found stabbed to death in his home in June 2006. Police arrested Parks in connection with the murder on Dec. 21, 2009.

The Baxter County Sheriff's Office is responsible for all inmate medical expenses. Although the exact amount of the Parks's medical bill is unknown, it is considered to be a significant price. The Baxter County Sheriff's Office says the medical allowance for the year is already $7,400 in the red.

It is unknown if the medical procedure will delay Park's trial proceedings.

Gary Parks, Charged with killing his stepfather, is a suspect in own father's murder

Jan 11, 2010

It appears that Gary Parks has a serious problem with patriarchal types. Last month, Parks was picked up for the 2006 murder of his stepfather, David Millstein. And now police are saying that he's also the main suspect in the 1993 shooting of his biological father, Jerry Parks...

It was a Sunday afternoon in June 2006 when Dr. Millstein was found stabbed to death in his Mountain Home, Arkansas house. His murder immediately made headlines, partly because he was a prominent physician and partly because of who he was married to -- Lois Parks.


Before meeting Millstein, Lois was married to Jerry Parks, a businessman in Little Rock, Arkansas with ties to the Clintons. His company, American Janitorial Services, supplied Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign headquarters and transitional office with janitors.

In 1993, Jerry was driving home from a dinner, when a car pulled up next to him and he was shot twice in the chest and once in the abdomen. When the police arrived on the scene, Jerry was already dead and ten shell casings were found scattered around his car. Many speculated that it was a politically motived crime, but no suspects were ever charged and the case remains unsolved to this day.
 
Then, when Millstein turned up dead in 2006, folks began eyeing Lois with suspicion. One murdered husband sounded like a bad dose of luck -- but two just sounded like the work of a black widow. Still, Lois Parks was never charged, and Millstein's case also went cold.


Then, just last month, police arrested none other than Lois and Jerry's son, Gary, for the murder of his stepfather. Police aren't saying what evidence tied Gary to the scene of the crime or why he might have committed the murder. They also won't comment on whether or not Gary acted alone. All we know is that, if convicted, Gary faces the death penalty.


As for the response of Gary's family, his half-sister Denise Hickman told OzarksFirst.com that because of her brother's arrest, she was having "an awesome Christmas." Hickman -- who is the biological daughter of Jerry Parks -- believes her brother is also responsible for her father's murder and hopes that his recent arrest will finally bring a conclusion to their dad's case, too.

Right now, Mountain Home police are working with Little Rock authorities in hopes of charging Parks with his father's murder, as well.

Suspected murderer of physician now jailed in Mountain Home, AR

December 23, 2009

Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel said murder suspect Gary Wayne Parks waived extradition in a Shelby County, Tenn., court about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday and was brought to the Baxter County jail, arriving around 6 p.m.

Parks, 38, is the stepson of murdered Mountain Home physician David Millstein, who was killed here three and a one-half years ago. Parks was arrested Monday morning at his home in Germantown, Tenn., by Mountain Home Police Lt. Nevin Barnes, Arkansas State Police Sgt. Mark Hollingsworth and Germantown police officers.

Prosecuting Attorney Ronald Kincade said Parks would be held without bond on the charge of capital murder. The charges gives prosecutors the option to seek the death penalty. Park's court appearance date is set for Jan. 21, 2010.

Millstein, 62, was found dead June 18, 2006, after a police officer went to his residence to check on his well-being. He was a urologist with a private practice and worked at Baxter Regional Medical Center.

Millstein was married to Lois Parks, who had lived in the Little Rock area at the time of his death. She also is the widow of Jerry Parks, who was killed in 1993 and whose death remains unsolved.

In announcing the arrest of Parks for Millstein's murder Monday, Manuel said the investigation is ongoing and few details, including the motive, were released. Nor could Manuel release details of Park's criminal record, he said, because it was from a national crime database available only to law enforcement.

In Little Rock, the Pulaski County Clerk's office records showed Parks was convicted of drug possession in 2005 and theft by receiving in 2002.

Police Make Arrest In Doctor's Death

Authorities have arrested the stepson of a local doctor who was found stabbed to death in his home 3 1/2 years ago.

Gary Wayne Parks, 39, of Germantown, Tenn., is charged with capital murder in Dr. David Millstein's death, Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel announced in a Monday press conference.

Millstein, 62, was found dead June 18, 2006, after a police officer went to his home to check on his well-being. He was a urologist with his own practice and worked at Baxter Regional Medical Center.

Shortly before 9:30 a.m. Monday, police went to Parks' home in Germantown, a Memphis suburb, and arrested him without incident, Manuel said.

Lt. Nevin Barnes with the Mountain Home Police Department, Sgt. Mark Hollingsworth with Arkansas State Police and Germantown police officers made the arrest, he said.

"We've been in constant contact with investigators and met with them several times," said 14th Judicial District Prosecutor Ron Kincade. "The case has progressed and we believe we have enough information to present the case at trial."

Authorities are releasing few details about the case, including a possible motive, saying the investigation is ongoing. Police would not say if there are additional suspects in the case.

"There's not a lot we can say," Manuel said. "What we can't say has got to do with case integrity."
Police say Parks has a lengthy criminal record but could not release the information because it was from a national criminal database available only to law enforcement. According to the Pulaski County's Circuit Clerk's Office in Little Rock, Parks was convicted of drug possession in 2005 and theft by receiving in 2002.

Millstein was married to Lois Parks, who had lived in the Little Rock area at the time of his death. She also is the widow of Jerry Parks, who was killed in 1993 and whose death remains unsolved.

Authorities believe Gary Wayne Parks will waive extradition and be returned to Baxter County but are ready to obtain a governor's warrant if necessary, Kincade said. The charge gives prosecutors the option to seek the death penalty.

Arkansas State Police, the Germantown, Tenn., Police Department, the Little Rock and North Little Rock police departments and the Federal Bureau of Investigation also assisted in the investigation.

Dr. David I Millstein



MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. -- Law officers are investigating the apparent murder of a man from Mountain Home. A Mountain Home police officer found the body of Dr. David Millstein in his home about 9:45 p.m. Sunday.
A spokesman for the Mountain Home Police Department says an officer went to Millstein’s home after the department got a request to check on the urologist’s welfare. The officer knocked but no one answered. When he found the door unlocked, the officer went inside and found the body. The chief says officers processed the home for evidence all night.

Police said no one reported seeing Millstein since Friday but The Associated Press reported that a neighbor told a reporter that she saw him jogging in the neighborhood on Saturday evening. State police detectives are helping the Mountain Home Police Department's detectives.
Millstein’s neighbors are in shock. They say he loved the community and loved his work

"Dr. Millstein was the most wonderful man I met,” said neighbor Tony Pagni. “He was a real small town doctor like doesn't exist anymore. He would make house calls and do pro bono work for anybody who needed it.”

“I knew the victim,” said Seamans. “He was a very nice man, upstanding citizen, good doctor, and I know will be sorely missed. And we'll work hard to solve this."

“He was well loved in the community by all,” said Pagni.
